@Raspberry_Pi meet up at @NYCResistor #AmericanPi – @adafruit @element14

Adafruit 270-2

Adafruit had a great time visiting with Rob Bishop from Raspberry Pi at NYC Resistor in Brooklyn. Lots of enthusiastic folks showed up and learned, shared, and made all around the Raspberry Pi single board computer. Some photos and notes below!


Becky, gone Pi crazy.


Rob sets up demo Raspberry Pi projects


Phil and Matt were hard at work on their laptops, but Limor and Becky were just in the moment. :)




Above Limor demonstrates the RasPi light painting project, which you can learn to build over on the Adafruit Learning site.
